Titus Canyon Road Trip

Titus Canyon Narrows

Titus Canyon is one of Death Valley’s most distinctive canyons with a dirt road that passes through some beautiful desert mountain scenery, an extremely narrow canyon and is part of some unscrupulous Death Valley history. It is also one of the most popular off-road adventures in the Park.

The Lone Pine Area

Mobius Arch & Mt. Whitney

There’s a sleepy little town named Lone Pine that offers such a myriad of recreational opportunities for the everyday person to enjoy, it’s amazing that it remains a quaint little town. Even more amazing is that it’s only a 2 to 4 hour drive away from a population of 22 million people – the draw of Southern California.

Golden Canyon Hike Death Valley

Golden Canyon Badlands in Death Valley

Golden Canyon Badlands in Death Valley

This is one of our favorite hikes in Death Valley because of all of the colors and endless shapes and contours of the eroded badlands. The hike up Golden Canyon is a popular one because of many reasons.  For one, it showcases what Death Valley is all about: stark barren beauty.  Two, it is close to Death Valley’s central settlement: Furnace Creek.  Three, it is an easy and rewarding hike, even if you simply walk a few hundred feet into the canyon from your vehicle.  The bottom line, a visit to Death Valley should include a small or long hike into Golden Canyon, just like a visit to Death Valley should include a stop in Badwater.

Corona Mine, Jail Canyon

Located north of Ballarat in the Panamint Mountains, Jail Canyon is a colorful, scenic drive with a well-preserved mining camp and mill to explore at the end. Jail Canyon itself is multicolored and very pretty but the scenery getting up to the canyon is quite spectacular, too.  With panoramic views of the multi-layered, west-facing Panamint Mountains and the striking erosion of nearby Hall Canyon, you will want to take your time getting to the canyon so you can enjoy the views!
